NIB value applies only if you have never shot the weapon, have the original box, and all associated paperwork. If you have shot it, it falls into the excellent condition and the $500.00 USD value applies.

However, with only 20 rounds through it with box and paperwork the deal you work out is what it is valued at to the buyer. These values are not cast in concrete. The buyer always assesses the value to himself and shells out the cash....

Values are also affected by regional locations, i.e. higher caliber weapons generally sell for more up north than down south and lower caliber weapons sell for more in the south....

Hope this explains it a little,

The .308 was only made in 1957 and the .270 was only made in 1953. these are rarer caliburs and are worth more and expected to keep going up.Check it out @ remington.com. I noticed you have posted this reply about all 760 gamemasters @ several listings and thought you might be interested in the facts. Not tryin to dis ya -- just a little fyi. PS I wouldnt take a grand for mine.

I know this is an old post, but I am replying in hopes that people reading it down the road will get good information. The .308 caliber was made in 760's 1957-1980 and the .270 was made 1953-1980. The 270 was the 2nd most produced caliber and the .308 was third most. They are not rare, but are great hunting rifles. There was no 760, be it rifle or carbine that was only produced 1 year.

Hi Kevin - I am curious where you got your information as Remington's factory web site does not agree.
http://www.remington.com/products/archived/centerfire/pump-action/model-760-gamemaster.aspx

(Model 760 in .35 Rem. – 1980 only)

If you look closer at the remington page you will see that the .35 was introduced in 1952, the first year of production. It was discontinued in 1967 and released again in 1980, so it was produced for quite a few years. My info comes from the book remington pump action and autoloading rifles by Eugene myszkowski. It is a great book, I suggest reading it if you like 760's. There is no more complete book out there for them that I know of. I also own 3 760's and a 7600, if I had more money I would have quite a few more, they are great rifles.

OK I see what you are talking about. The Remington page is misleading, or certainly easy to mis-read.
